Types of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles can provide many benefits, including fast and easy transportation, minimal gas usage, and leisure riding. On the flipside, motorcycles also leave riders very vulnerable when accidents occur, especially considering there is little to no protection provided by the bike.

There are various types of accidents that can occur when a motorcycle rider takes to the road. These accidents can often leave a rider suffering serious, life-altering injuries. From broken backs to severe burns and lacerations, a rider may find themselves in extreme pain and facing extensive medical bills.

Some of the most common types of accidents include:

  • Left-turn collisions
  • Failure to yield accidents
  • U-turn collisions
  • Roadway defects or obstructions
  • Blind spot accidents
  • Defective motorcycle parts
  • Rear-end accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents

Due to the small size of motorcycles, many motorist often claim they simply did not see a rider or they rode up out of nowhere. While drivers may try to blame motorcycle riders, it is often the other way around.
